Good for the wallet - good for the climate
It has never been more important to save water and energy, thus protecting both the environment and your wallet. Our faucets and showers with water-saving technology make a valuable contribution and pay for themselves in no time with their contemporary technology. Find out more now and discover our sustainability champions.
It has never been more important than at present to be particularly economical with water and energy resources in your own four walls - especially in the bathroom and kitchen. As a result of the war, energy prices have risen so dramatically that many household budgets are being stretched to the limit. And climate change is also leaving unmistakable traces in many parts of Europe and causing serious damage to people, the environment and the economy.
Save water and money
With our ingenious aerator technology, the water is enriched with air and in this way the flow rate of our washbasin and kitchen fittings is reduced to 5 litres or less per minute. So you can #stayfluid in complete relaxation.
With the ingenious flow limitation for showers, the flow rate is reduced to 9 litres per minute. This saves you money for the finer things in life - without having to sacrifice showering comfort.
Water only when you really need it - and your hand movement activates the sensor. This way, less water is wasted and your budget is protected. In addition, the flow rate is reduced as standard. So you save twice.
With KLUDI brand-name fittings, you can be sure that the flow values are standards-compliant. We test the fittings’ mechanical wear properties, e.g. the durability of the functional unit (cartridge), using standardised and proprietary test methods. These tests show that high-quality single-lever mixers can easily withstand 210,000 on/off operations and temperature changes. In practice, this is equivalent to roughly 10 years of use.
but how much?
The energy required for hot water production in bathrooms and kitchens and the resulting costs are considerable. The energy advisory service of the Rhineland-Palatinate consumer advice centre provides the following comparison for Germany based on average values:

KLUDI's water-saving products are accompanied by enormous energy savings, because thanks to flow limitation, less water needs to be heated. Based on a study by the Ingolstadt University of Technology, it can be concluded that a 39° Celsius shower bath with a nine-liter overhead or hand shower from KLUDI saves 40% energy. This is clearly noticeable in the wallet and conserves resources and the environment.
- A calculation example
For a family of four that showers daily and has 325 days of presence at home, this adds up to a saving of 2,730 kWh per year. If we now assume a gross gas price of 8 euro cents per kilowatt hour, the operating costs fall by just over 218 euros.
Reduce costs without sacrificing comfort
From shower systems, showerheads and basin mixers in the bathroom to kitchen faucets - the ECO technology integrated in many water-saving products limits the flow to up to 3.8 liters per minute, letting you save water and energy efficiently.
In many KLUDI washbasin and kitchen fittings, this function ensures even greater energy efficiency, as only cold water flows instead of mixed water when the handle is in the standard middle position. This is good for the environment and your budget.
Thanks to integrated infrared technology, water in KLUDI sensor fittings only flows when the sensor field is activated by hand movement - and this with a noticeably reduced flow rate anyway.to technology
